about

"Darker Nights" is the follow up EP to Wind In Sails debut album "Brighter Days". This album has a much more focused and stripped down vibe, as well as a more personal approach to the recording process in general. With tracks like the single "Level Head" and the closing track "Heart to focus" this album is finely crafted with beautiful harmonies and sincere lyrics.

Track Name: Into the night
Verse 1
This one hits me close to home
and its a shame that i
had waited for so long to tell you
just how wrong it felt
living empty and alone
but i've finally made it out
and don't know where to go from here
I'm free of all my doubts
as they slowly disappears

Chorus
We are where we're meant to be
there's no turning back from here
Running blind into the dark
without a worry in the world
We are falling faster than we ever have before
Searching for a purpose in our lives
while we're reaching out for more

Always reaching out for more

Verse 2
The grounds giving way now
deep in over my head, but ill make it out
Hands reaching from the grave
to give something more, a belief in the brave
Pull yourself out of the ground
Be who you are, be here and now

Chorus
We are where we're meant to be
there's no turning back from here
Running blind into the dark
without a worry in the world
We are falling faster than we ever have before
Searching for a purpose in our lives
while we're reaching out for more
We are falling faster, faster
we are falling faster
Track Name: level head
Verse 1
Made my way back home from all i'd done
i was lost, but i had won
I took pride in my last name
but moving on has always felt the same
It was always just the same

Chorus
When i saw you standing there i knew
it could never be undone
I heard all your lies echoing throughout every room
And i learned my lesson well
Cut ties to all i've owned
Why it took so long to let go, i guess i'll never know

Verse 2
Found this buried inch deep in the ground
The night grew cold and void of sound
I fought to my wits end
While searching for a way to save myself

Chorus
When i saw you standing there i knew
it could never be undone
I heard all your lies echoing throughout every room
and i learned my lesson well
Cut ties to all i've owned
Why it took so long to let go, i guess ill never know

Bridge
I've always thought myself an honest, simple man
Doing all i can to keep a level head

Chorus
Track Name: true north
Verse 1
You were kind and you were patient, always sitting just the same
In your corner of the kitchen, building all those model planes
You had two sons and three daughters, raised them all the better for
You kept peace inside of your harbor
I couldn't tell you who loved you more

Verse 2
We had spent maybe an hour in the summer of "04"
talking just like old friends would, sitting out on the back porch
You said you were proud of my direction
you knew i found my true north
I hope you can see how much everyone loved you
and hear these words

Chorus
We lost ourselves that day, as you found your way in to the light
It was your time to fly north for good as we watched your spirit take flight
a trail of hope in to the night

Chorus
Track Name: greenfield st.
Verse 1
This house is haunting all my dreams
its keeping me from waking up
These walls are hiding things from me
and faintly calling out my name

There's a presence in the halls
i hear their voices late at night
If i could somehow guide them all into the light

Chorus
That's the thing about ghosts, they say
they wont leave until the moment they're at peace
What are you missing the most, the hardest part of moving on is always the letting go

Verse 2
I cant accept the consequence of getting all wrapped up in this
Im losing touch with common sense
and blurring the lines of consciousness

There's a presence in these halls
i feel they're sadness in my bones
If i could somehow find the light to guide them home

Bridge
No you're not where you belong
All of your loved ones are waiting
Now that your business here is done
Im hoping you'll be moving on

Chorus
Track Name: heart to focus
Verse 1
Is this the last song i will write
is this the first time losing a loved one meant staying behind
meant staying behind
oh no

I only wanted for something more
never settle in to something that you cant stand for
that you cant stand for
oh no

Be who you are at any cost

Chorus
Will i ever make it past this
Can i take a chance and hope my heart to focus
You'll look so lonely, so lonely
You look so lonely living a lie

Im better off on the outside

oh oh oh

Verse 2
I made my way though darker nights
I've hid my face from whiter lights, and I made it out alive
I made it out alive
Lets say it's all in good time, lets say its all in good time

Chorus
Will i ever make it past this
Can i take a chance and hope my heart to focus
You'll look so lonely, so lonely
You look so lonely living a lie

Im better off on the outside

Bridge
Oh oh oh, lets say its all in good time

Chorus
Did i really make it past this
I fought the night and won, enjoyed it while it lasted
Its not so lonely, so lonely
Its not so lonely living this life
Its not so lonely, so lonely
Its not so lonely living this life

We're all better off on the outside
